Our specialist Medical Negligence Lawyers may be able to help you claim breast cancer screening compensation on a No Win, No Fee basis.
We’re already fighting in the legal action from the error that hit the news last year where women did not receive their invitations for life-saving screening. The issue, reported in May last year, related to an IT glitch in 2009 that resulted in thousands of letters not being sent out to women aged between 68 and 71.
Some women in the category of patients who didn’t receive their letter developed breast cancer, and some are no longer with us. We’ve agreed to help anyone who needs to claim breast cancer screening compensation, and we’ve agreed to assist on a No Win, No Fee basis. This is the case for those caught in in last year’s scandal, and potentially for other Claimants with similar issues as well.
When can you claim breast cancer screening compensation?
You may be eligible to claim breast cancer screening compensation if you have suffered as a result of a screening, testing or results issue.
- If you never received your invitation. If you were caught up in the scandal from last year, we should be able to help you on a No Win, No Fee basis;
- If you never received results for your screening, or where you were given the incorrect results;
- A treatment plan or follow-up process wasn’t put in place.
In short, if a mistake happened, you may be eligible to claim for medical negligence compensation.
How does a breast cancer screening compensation claim work?
We’ll normally start your breast cancer screening compensation claim with a letter to the hospital, GP or whichever Trust / medical facility is responsible. We’ll ask them to investigate the case and then reply to us with a decision as to whether they accept or dispute responsibility.
If they accept responsibility, it’s a case of using specialist medical evidence to support the case and support how you have suffered. If they dispute the case, that medical evidence can become even more important as it may be the key piece of evidence we use to prove that you have a claim.
Our No Win, No Fee means that you can claim with confidence. We can write off our legal fees if the case doesn’t win, subject to the terms and conditions of the agreement. That last part we have to say. If you lost because you brought a fraudulent claim (as an extreme example perhaps) then our No Win, no Fee won’t cover you (of course!). If the case last because the evidence found that there simply wasn’t any negligence, that’s when our No Win, No Fee can kick in.
